In this episode of By Any Means Necessary, hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman are joined by Nick Stender, a member of the Chicago Teachers Union and an activist with Reds in Ed to discuss Joe Biden and the Democrats’ appeasement of Joe Manchin which has resulted in serious malnourishment of the benefits originally promised in the bill, how this appeasement exposes the ruling class unity of the so-called two-party system, and how the Democratic Party is so clearly not taking the Build Back Better bill and the benefits it would give to working and poor people seriously.
